Uruguay PEP-School "Modelling the Impact of Macroeconomic Policies and Shocks"
This particular course will train participants in constructing (CGE) models of their national economy, and conducting simulations in order to forecast the impact of macroeconomic shocks and/or policies on an economy’s multiple agents, sectors and the various dimensions of poverty and welfare within the country. Participants will learn how to: - Build and use computable general equilibrium (CGE) models, from simple to more complex representations of national economies. Basic command of related techniques and tools will also be acquired (e.g. SAMs, GAMS software) - Conduct simulations of the occurrence of macroeconomic policies and/or shocks in the economy - Interpret the results, i.e. forecasted impacts and outcomes on the economy’s different sectors and agents
